By Jean-Philippe Rameau
Les Arts Florissants
Musical direction by William Christie
Staging by Sophie Daneman
Choreography by Françoise Denieau, revival choreography by Gilles Poirier

“William Christie founded Les Arts Florissants expressly to perform this repertoire, and their playing and singing has a lived-in feel that comes from extensive familiarity with the music.”
—The Guardian (UK)

Widely considered among the foremost interpreters of early-music for modern audiences, celebrated conductor William Christie and his acclaimed ensemble Les Arts Florissants present two rarely seen pastoral opera-ballets that burst with the sensuous promise of spring. Originally penned by 18th-century French composer Jean-Philippe Rameau for the court of Louis XV, these enchanting operatic miniatures, La naissance d'Osiris and Daphnis et Églé, served as both a symbol of the court’s opulence and a source of evening entertainment. Rameau, maître à danser (“Rameau, dancing master”) is a sublime showcase for Christie’s singular brilliance and the ravishing power of baroque music.

Produced by Théâtre de Caen and Les Arts Florissants with the support of the Selz Foundation.
